Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

Man Tased While Attempting To Shake Megachurch Pastor’s Hand

Remember that all satire has an element of truth as the starting point. The Babylon Bee has an excellent satire piece here worth reading.

If you’re going to make a bold move like attempting to shake your megachurch pastor’s hand as he makes a beeline for the green room after service, make sure your church’s security team isn’t armed.

..... The pastor was reportedly able to leap out of the way, narrowly avoiding making contact with a church member, before he was quickly escorted to safety by staff members.

“That was a close one,” Hanson said later in a video posted to Instagram as he flew to a stop on his book tour. “I may not know the names of my security staff, but I’m eternally grateful to each and every one of them for their service.”
